Funny Money Saturday


Bitcoin lost almost a fifth of its value in 10 hours on Friday, having surged more than 40 percent in the preceding 48 hours, sparking fears the market may be heading for a price collapse.

In a hectic day on Thursday, bitcoin leapt from below $16,000 to $19,500 in less than an hour on the U.S.-based GDAX, one of the biggest exchanges globally, while it was still changing hands at about $15,900 on the Luxembourg-based Bitstamp. Some market watchers attributed the lurch higher to the coming launch of bitcoin futures on major exchanges.

Having then climbed to $16,666 on Bitstamp at around 0200 GMT on Friday, it tumbled to $13,482 by around 1200 GMT – a slide of more than 19 percent. It was last down 8.2 percent at $15,232.32 on BitStamp.

    Flaky currency if you ask me, I will stick with my worthless Federal Reserve notes.

    Fog lifted; cold descended, 11 degrees of frost. Typical 25 minutes to the Old Post Office for Brazilian seafood dinner.

    I had my mouth all watered for a Hot Turkey Sandwich, until I got it and found the turkey to be most disgusting, PTOOEY! Didn’t have to pay for it luckily unless I get a 2AM bathroom call. 😦

    I had soup instead.

    We had some snow, but not as much as down south. Only had to use a broom on the back deck, and I can see the grass thru the snow. Maybe an inch, if that.

    It’s cold though, I think the low at the ranch was 23°.

    I cooked today, Pete and family are coming over tomorrow. Whipped up some Porcupine Meatballs and broccoli, will do something w/ potatoes tomorrow morning. Maybe American Fried with green pepper, onion and lots of pepper. Meatballs, however, call for mash potatoes. Meh.

    Jill came over this morning, caught up on the last two episodes of “The Walking Dead,” had her watch a couple “Drunk History” episodes. I’d heard about that program when it started and never watched it, finally recorded it last week and HOLY COW! I laughed my butt off! I really wanted her to see the episode about Harriet Taubman, but my DVR erased it. It was set on keeping only the last 5 episodes, I fixed that and told it to keep ALL episodes. That way I won’t miss anything, can save the funniest ones for my kids and delete the rest.

    Took a shower a little while ago, put clean sheets on the bed this morning. Clean me will get into a clean bed later, WOO HOO!

    Of all the jobs I’ve had in our home over the 54 years, changing beds has always been the one I hated. Can’t explain it, heck, it doesn’t even take that much time to do. But I hate it.
